Following a wave of new strategic partnerships, global leader in luxury yachting activities Camper & Nicholsons International (C&N) is delighted to announce a new and exclusive collaboration with Ray White Marine (RWM), a division of Australasia's pre-eminent real estate group, Ray White.

The move complements C&N's recently established position in Asia and furthers RWM's move into the sale and charter of large yachts. It also represents C&N's first presence on the Australasian continent.

The recent delivery of Benetti's gigayacht IJE to serial superyacht owner James Packer exemplifies the solid position of the Australian and Kiwi market, not to mention growing interest from new and existing yacht owners in Australasia. The new partnership will leverage this growth via strategic meetings at a number of high-profile industry events, including the Sydney International Boat Show, Cannes Yachting Festival and Monaco Yacht Show respectively. This will include the opportunity for RWM's clients to experience C&N's exquisite selection of superyachts, such as 44m Feadship Moon Sand, diesel electric 41.8m Moonen Sofia, long-range expedition yacht 51m Jade 959 and our new addition 40M Sunseeker Rhine.

"We are delighted to start working with Rick and Brock Rodwell and to further expand, through them, our presence in the APAC region," says Bart Kimman, Commercial Director at CNA "We strongly believe on the ground presence is needed in each market and there are no better people who could help us spread the C&N story, values and unparalleled offering. I am sure we will start seeing some great results soon and couldn't be more excited to have started working during this Sydney Boat Show. We dived right into it!"

RWM is the long-standing and exclusive Ferretti dealer for Australia and New Zealand. RWM's Chief Executive and Co-Founder, Rick Rodwell, and International Sales Director, Brock Rodwell have unmatched experience selling luxury yachts in these markets.

Rick Rodwell is recognised as one of the most professional and skilled management and marketing experts in the Australian Marine Industry. Rick's career, spanning over 25 years, has seen him form invaluable relationships worldwide with industry associations and colleagues, manufacturers and suppliers.

Brock Rodwell's worldwide sales credentials and high-profile client list have made him an industry powerhouse, awarded No.1 Sales Broker on numerous occasions and a continued top-tier Ray White ELITE status agent. Brock has spent extensive time in Europe and Asia under leading global luxury yacht brands, along with brokering some of Australasia's largest yacht settlements in offshore waters.

Working closely with Bart Kimman, Camper & Nicholsons will provide RWM with the tools required to service their clientele in the 110ft plus superyacht segment.

Carmen Lau, Managing Director of Camper & Nicholsons Asia comments: "As more yachts across the globe look to migrate to the southern hemisphere, with the support of local government and the yachting community, areas like Australia and New Zealand are readier than ever to expand into the superyacht section. We are pleased to join forces with Ray White and enhance the local knowledge with our global network and know-how, to tackle this unique market."

In addition, The America's Cup, the oldest international sporting trophy in the world and the pinnacle of yacht racing and design, will be held in New Zealand in 2021. The closely contested race will bring a raft of new superyacht traffic to the entire Antipodes, showcasing the area as a spectacular superyacht destination. With RWM's assistance, C&N aims to become the first luxury yachting service provider throughout the Asia Pacific.

"Camper & Nicholsons is not only the oldest but perhaps the most prestigious name in yachting," says Brock Rodwell. "Having the chance of opening a market like Australia with a partner like this is exactly the type of opportunity that Rick and I, after years in this industry, wish to bring to our clients and partners. We can't wait to get started and see the results this will bring to us. We are delighted to enter into this exclusive partnership, and to have had the chance to announce it during our VIP dinner on 3 August."
